1988 Playskool Expres Train engine won't run. Light comes on but wheels won't turn. How can I repair it?


i recently restored a playskool express train that my son had, now for my grandson.

The on-off push switch is the yellow button in the smookestack also controlled by the yellow tab on the bottom (the on-off track can stop the train with the tab). If the light is on then perhaps the forward reverse switch (the yellow bar behind the cab needs to be pushed forward or backwards. In the middle might be off. I had to replace the motor, its a common sized DC motor 6V at 15000 RPM w/ 2mm shaft, for toys..
The bigger problem I had was that the battery cover was very finicky in how tight you closed it, and the rubber traction bands for the driving wheels were rotten. I replaced them with 1-5/16" ID x 1/8" O-rings. Still slips a little.

There is electricity coming from the tender of the Polar Express O gauge but the engine does not run. Is there somewhere to send it for repair?


Check with the store you purchased it from. If they don't repair trains they should be able to direct to one that does. You're not the first person to need repairs so they will know.

We just got the Hogwarts express and it will not complete 1 loop without derailing or the cars becoming uncoupled.


Well you should probably check the radius of your curves. The Hogwarts Express has a minimum curve of O36 and on a tighter radius curve it will derail. I have found that the Hogwarts train runs better on fasttrack than standard O. You should also make sure the track is flat because if it isn't completely flat it derails. The train isn't designed well so it derails but if you run it slow you shouldn't have a lot of problems.

Runs very slow... hard disk constantly running


You need to defrag your drive, make sure no unnecessary resources are running in the background and delete your temp folder as this fills with allsorts of rubbish you do not need and slows the operating system significantly.

I bought the set last year of holiday lionel trains g replaced batteries, have light on remote and noise from engine but no movement? any ideas


If all cars are not properly on the track, the engine does not have enough power to pull the cars. Try with engine and coal car only to zero in on cause.
